By the time you get the Xray another car will be out. I say stay with the Schumacher if you don't want to feel left out but the Xray is a great car.

I have 2 Xrays myself and think they are great. I have heard that the new MI3 is a great car. I've seen it and like some of the features on it. Both are good but as far as carpet someone who has driven both on carpet could give a honest opinion.

The mi3 is a stunner right out of the box, its easiest car to work on, on the market today.

Been mostly running mine on carpet, as back here in the UK, the weather pretty much sucks at the moment so its mostly indoors, but im very pleased with it so far, and everyone knows how strong schumachers are outdoors so i have no question with its ablity there, just that i havent had much outdoor track time with it, looking forward to kicking ass with it though at the KOGP.

Even though im biased, get the schumy, take a look at the schumacher corner for support for the car etc, its mega!

I think both cars are great. The 007 took many top wins this past year - and rctech rumor mills are churnnin' with a 008 coming out soon.

I have had my Mi3 since late May and I have run it on asphalt and carpet - all I can say is that i love it. Car is super easy to work on and drives like a dream. I ran it on carpet foam yesterday and I was going just as fast as my previous car - THE FIRST TIME OUT!

I think either way you can't go wrong, but with a new Xray allegedly coming out, you might be better off with the Mi3.....

I would go with the Mi3. The car is infinately tunable and it is by far the best car I have ever owned and I've had pretty much every car out there. All I race is carpet. Xray is a nice car too though. You really can't go wrong but I'm just a bit partial to the MI3!!!
